"Not for fame or reward, not for place or rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity; but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it; these men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died."
--Rev. Dr. Randolph McKim (inscription on Confederate soldiers monument, Arlington National Cemetery)
